Every year while attending Memorial Day services, I listen to Tom Goebel read the names of Bereans who died while in service of our country. I, along with several veterans, have been kicking around different ideas to honor these heroes, nearly 70 in all.
We’ve decided to display an individual banner containing the name of each hero, their branch of the military and the war in which they served. These banners will be displayed on the light poles and the Northern entrance to town on the Front St. bridge, where currently we have Cleveland Browns banners. This will be known as Berea’s "Boulevard of Heroes."
I believe this is an appropriate way to recognize these brave soldiers, sailors, airmen and one nurse.
